Event Description

This class will provide participants the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of aquaponics in a living classroom environment at The GrowHaus, a non-profit urban farm and marketplace in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. The course will be a combination of classroom lecture and hands on work among three different aquaponics systems. Aquaponics is a sustainable food production method that incorporates aquaculture (growing fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in a soil-less media) in a recirculating system. Aquaponics can be scaled from a basement or backyard for personal food production, to large scale community, school or commercial systems. The course covers:

  • Benefits of Aquaponics
  • System Components
  • System Designs
  • Fish Selection and Health
  • Plant Selection and Health
  • Bacteria and the Nitrification Cycle
  • System Design Ratios
  • System Startup Procedures
  • Ongoing Maintenance Procedures
  • Tips and Tricks

This hands-on workshop is presented at the GrowHaus at 47th and York, a Denver neighborhood designated as a Food Desert. Cost is $65 per person, payable via paypal or personal check.

For more information and to register for the session, please go to the Colorado Aquaponics website at or contact us at 720-470-7007.
